DIY halloween treat bag!

This post was shared last week over at Lolly Jane---how lucky was I to guest post right?! 

Butttt in case you missed it...

Here is a little Halloween project
I came up with----
which was inspired by the question why buy a treat bag when you could make one?!

Here is the final product:

{its double sided so here is the opposite side}

And here is how I did everything:
**I used a linen bag that I purchased for a dollar**

-Lets start with the print part it is a nice and simple technique I use quite often on my blog---I will send you over there to get the actual tutorial (click here) but I will share a few photos of the process.
and a little summary.

I used a laser printed image in reverse.

You cover the image with citra solv (a natural cleaner) and then apply pressure on the image (I use a spoon).

It is a nice and simple way to transfer the image!

Next I added some fun "stuff"
this is how you can make the fabric flower!

cut 4 circles out of each fabric and fold once

and then twice and finally glue down into place.

I also added a bow to the handle (I sewed lace onto the bright orange scrap of fabric.

And I sewed a row of folded tule to the top of the bag.

I am linking up to a few of these wonderful blog parties!

Do you have to use a laser printer? I love this idea but I only have a deskjet. Also, how do you wash it?

I love this bag! I saw you over at Lolly Jane and posted a question. Was hoping to find out where you purchased a plain linen bag. I can only find heavy duty canvas ones around here. Thanks in advance.
